First, my apologies for not posting sooner...I haven't known what to say regarding the direction of things lately. Our journey to bring David here from R*ssia is over. Nothing more can be done to make this work. All along I was so worried about the money, but God provided at every juncture. It came down to problems with the paperwork. The region where Gl*b resides is very difficult and continues to come down harder and harder on adoptive parents. We needed documentation from Chris' first marriage, and it became impossible to retrieve that documentation because of the lapse of time. So...the agency felt we would not make it through court in this very stringent area of R*ussia.
We are heartbroken. It has been a long 10 months and we have worked so hard to make this adoption happen. The only positive aspect of this is that all the money we raised will stay with Gl*b in the form of a grant. My prayer is that a family will be found for him soon.
As for us, I don't know what we'll do now. We are praying for wisdom and discernment about what, if anything, to do next. There are so many orphans out there who need a family, and yet perhaps God has other plans for us at this point.
We would appreciate your prayers, both for Gl*b and for our family.
